Just a stone’s throw – and a short but steep climb – away from the bustling business district, Brunch Club requires a bit of trekking to get to, but its hearty fare and calming interiors, lined with a magazines-filled wall, make the trip a worthwhile one. Since its low-key launch in 2006, locals and foreigners alike have been enjoying Brunch Club’s trusted all-day brunch menu filled with popular items like Eggs Benedict and Egg White with Frittata. Also, service never fails here.
